ADA 45P Forest scape

So I started with a nano tank and sold it pretty quick to go "bigger". I was thinking about a second high tech setup and wanted to buy an ada 60p. But I decided to go smaller and go for the ada 45p as I already have an eheim 2211 with 2 sets of lily pipes which I can use for this setup. It will cost less plants, soil etc. but IMO it's harder to scape a nano tank. Tried my best to create some depth in this 45x27x30 cm tank.

Have a look at my Youtube channel

Hello !
Beautiful forest scrape !!!

If you wanna use the Yoghurt method, you will need to fully cycle the tank first.
after all the wood mold gone.
Drain the whole think then start painting your youghut method.
make sure keep it moist but not dripping wet.
You will have some funky smell coming out but will gone in time.
Good luck.
and keep us post. :-)

Thanks!

Is it also possible to put the spiderwood pieces in a tub and let them waterlog for weeks? Will this also remove all the mold in wood? I didn't let the tank cycle with wood on my 34 gal before putting moss on it.

Another cabinet didn't really like the other one. Only 5 and painted it with some old black paint that we have at home. Front will be hidden with a piece of fabric.





Pieces are waterlogging to remove slimy coat.

Made a good deal on a dennerle co2 system. Equipment is coming slowly together...




Not sure what I will do in this tank: diffuser or inline atomizer..

If it' an ADA Forest Scape, you must go diffuser. That's all they use.

Mosses came in today
Got some usuki for free but it can only tolerate max 22 celcius. My tank will be 23 so not sure if it will survive.

New stuff came in

Hopefully the hydor eth 200 will last a "long" time on my ada 45p. After reading it doesn't seem the best choice for a nano tank. But I don't really wanna build one my self or have a heater in the tank. So fingers crossed!

The eheim skim 350 is great but when I have to clean it, I have to remove it completely from the tank and always several shrimps are in there. So I decided to try the ocean free surfclear. The sponge can be removed when the skimmer is in tank and it has a safe guard for shrimps and fish. It's a little less strong than the eheim skim 350 but no problem because it is only an ada 45p.

I needed a thermometer and decided to buy one from ADA.

Unfortunately my weeping moss is turning yellow/brown on the branches. It receives a lot of light. I spray two times a day and leave 2 openings open to reduce the chance of mold. Although there is already some mold growing. Hard to find the "perfect" balance to keep moss moisture enough and avoid mold. Also hard to remove the mold because I made some roots on the trees and it isn't very firmly attached with fishing line.

Received some bucephalandra moss from someone. Very happy with it. It grows low, compact and is not demanding.
